The Cake - You Can Have Him

The Cake performing on the Smothers Brothers Variety Show back in 1967. Jeanette Jacobs, the stunning brunette in the green pantsuit, is clearly not a happy camper. Her involvement with Jimi Hendrix and penchant for dropping buckets of acid might explain her demeanor.

Upon further review, the real backstory can be found at Dangerous Minds along with a fascinating look at the "Real Life Valley of The Dolls". Check it out.

Thanks to The Redundant Variety Hour for starting me on the journey.

There is so much going on here, on so many levels. What a really fantastic song as well as a perfect sno-globe like time capsule of 1967. It also is haunting, mesmerizing, and profoundly disturbing. Really. I watched this a number of times, and I'm not done with it yet. Some people have found this rather funny, I beg to differ. Though I know that some of this was part of their schtick, I can't help but feel as though intruding on something that wasn't meant to be seen.
